About this Event

AusIndustry, with the support of RDA - Wide Bay Burnett, is holding an information session on the Federal Government’s Modern Manufacturing Strategy released as part of its 2020-21 budget.

Additionally the information session will also cover information on applying for competitive grants.

The Modern Manufacturing Strategy has been developed to help Australian manufacturers to:

  • scale-up
  • improve competitiveness
  • build more resilient supply chains

The strategy is a part of the Government’s JobMaker plan. As part of the strategy, the Australian Government is committing to $52.8 million to the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund (MMF) program. This is the second round of this program. The program will look to support approximately 150 firms that align with the National Manufacturing Priorities. This program will include the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund round two.

The MMF round two aims to address barriers to growth and innovation. MMF round two will look to:

  • co-fund capital investment technology upgrades that help transform businesses
  • help create and maintain a highly skilled workforce through jobs growth and upskilling

The program will offer:

  • large-scale grants of $100,000 to $1 million on a 3-to-1 funding basis
  • support for transformative investments in technologies and processes

MMF round two will open before the end of 2020. To be eligible for grants, businesses will need to show:

  • expected job growth
  • upskilling of their existing employees
  • alignment with the National Manufacturing Priorities
